A couple of months back I wrote this post on 10 Charming Small Towns in Italy. I loved all your suggestions and comments on it and would like to add a few more to the ever expanding list.

5 More Charming Small Towns in Italy
The glass making island, Murano, is often overshadowed by its colourful neighbor Burano. But Murano is equally charming with its beautiful bridges and towers. It’s hard not to miss the glass shops selling chandeliers, souvenirs and jewelry. Everything is so exquisite (and expensive) but no one charges to window shop you know….
The noise of the busy cities sometimes gets to me and Fiesole is the perfect break I need when in Florence. It is a mere 20 minutes from Florence and is a typical small Italian town with a laid back vibe, narrow alleys and beautiful cafes.
A 5 minutes train ride from Polignano a mare is the town of Monopoli. It is small town in Italy but has a huge harbour and a very authentic local vibe. Even though the historic centre finishes as soon as one reaches, the town is lovely for a quick day trip.
Gallipoli: Another beautiful town in Puglia is Gallipoli. It is an hour and a half from Lecce and has the most adorable stores. The Pugliese products entice you and the smell of freshly made pasta fills the streets. The sea air is warm and inviting.
Orvieto: One of my favorite towns in Umbria and an easy day trip from Rome, is Orvieto. It is famous for its magnificent Duomo and the Orvieto Classico wine. The town has a small bell tower from where you can get sweeping views of the Umbrian countryside and an underground city that goes back to the Etruscans. I hope you enjoyed this list of some More Charming Small Towns in Italy.
Ostuni: Another fabulous white washed town in Puglia is Ostuni. With a beautiful piazza and several small and big churches around, Ostuni is a dream. From here you can see the sea and have a lazy day exploring its many streets.
